In 2004 Einstein moved the label to Los Angeles, and the last label releases came in 2007 with CDs from Elgin IL's The Brokedowns, and Arizona's Seven Storey Mountain. THICK currently operates as a catalog only label though Einstein insists "anything is possible".
In the age of increasingly soulless, corporate, for-sale-to-the-highest-bidder record labels—even in the ranks of the venerated indies—Chicago's Thick Records stands out as a shining beacon of D.I.Y. integrity, a home for truly independent, original and idiosyncratic artists that, in the words of the great Johnny Rotten, "mean it, man." It is an indispensable part of the Windy City's music scene, and an invaluable treasure for the American musical underground at large" - Jim Derogatis - pop music critic, Chicago Sun Times (2004)
